After Star Wars Battlefront 1 got a fair bit of criticism due to a lack of content, EA has decided to go all-out with Battlefront 2. There will be a lot more maps to explore and ruin, a large variety of vehicles and weapons spread across the various Star Wars time periods, space-based combat with its own unique ships and gameplay systems, more villains and heroes to play around with, and perhaps most surprisingly of all, a lengthy singleplayer campaign with a focus on storytelling.

While the recently posted preview video won't offer you much of a look at campaign gameplay, it will give you a bit of an idea of just what kind of storyline the developers are going for. Have a look, its actually quite interesting:

Star Wars Battlefront 2 and its singleplayer campaign will be coming to PC and consoles on November 17th. If you don't feel like waiting for that long, however, you'll be glad to hear that there will be an Open Beta in October. It will begin on October 6th for both PC and consoles, while those that have decided to pre-order will be given access a couple of days earlier, on October 4th. The Open Beta will last until October 9th, so you should have plenty of time to give Battlefront 2 a try and see if its the sort of game you'd enjoy or not. And as a final note, if you would like to learn more about Battlefront 2 you should head over to the official website.
